Cruise Formal Dress: Little Black Dresses

If you are planning a cruise holiday, you may be looking for a cruise formal dress to wear. On most cruises there is likely to be at least one formal evening that requires you to dress up.  Some people dread formal nights as it can be quite tricky, especially for first-time cruisers, to decide what to take with you to wear. 

If you’re wondering how many formal nights to expect on a cruise, it will depend on the cruise line and length of cruise. For example, Princess Cruises and P&O Cruises will typically have 3-4 formal nights on a 14-night cruise. You can check with the cruise line or your travel agent before the cruise.

I love dressing up and believe that you can never go wrong with a little black dress for formal cruise nights so I’ve compiled a list of 15 little black dresses that are perfect for cruising.  The best thing about these dresses are that they are all under £50, so it’s clear that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to look good!  I love a bargain, here are my top picks.
